Our no longer Declaring War officially has a lot to do with this. We don't, as other nations don't, because of our treaty with the UN and the subsequent UN Participation Act signed after becoming a member. This has a lot to do with our stalemated quasi "wars" such as Korean and Nam. Expect the same on Afghanistan. I'd throw Iraq in there as well, even if we didn't get the Security Council vote because the Resolution our Congress drew up was not a Declaration of War it was a UN-style call for military action to enforce the UN resolutions alleged to being violated by SH. ( but which weren't)
